David and Jessica’s intimate Dillon Beach wedding

My gosh, there are so many wonderful things to say about David and Jessica. When these two New Yorkers contacted us about their wedding in Dillon Beach, CA we were more than a wee bit excited. When we finally got to meet them just a few days before the wedding we knew these two were something special. David and Jessica are elegant, sweet, and sophisticated and their wedding was simply perfect for them. The wedding was held at David’s grandfather’s house overlooking an incredible ocean view. David’s grandfather built the quaint beach house himself in the ’70s, so to say that the house is special is quite the understatement. The wedding itself was terribly sweet and intimate with less than 40 guests and we loved getting to know all of them.

Jessica looked amazing in her elegant wedding gown from Kleinfeld’s in New York. I loved the details of the back and shoulders.

While Jessica got ready at the house next door, David was at his grandfather’s where the wedding was getting set up.

David had to be one of the most stylish grooms we’d ever met. I’m not a guy, but I adore his shoes! Especially in combination with that awesome carpet, which I think was made to match the blog.

Then it was time for one of my favorite first looks ever. David set himself up on the bluff with the ocean breeze blowing, while Jessica approached.

Their priceless expressions of joy paired with the breathtaking coastal views were almost too much to handle. There was so much happiness between the two of them! This is why I adore getting to capture this moment.

The beach house, aptly named “The Sand Castle”, was a wonderful setting. It was simply decorated with bright flowers, which was all that was really needed. It was already so cute as is.

Jessica’s dog Sammy, made sure he was a part of the action. He sat at David and Jessica’s feet as they said their vows.

The FOOD was incredible. Cocktail hour featured some delicious barbecued oysters.

The beach house was transformed from ceremony to reception for the incredibly wholesome and delicious meal provided by Indian Peach Food Co. All local and organic ingredients prepared in creative ways made for some amazing cuisine.

This was the smallest wedding we’ve been to so far, and it was so wonderful how close everyone was and how easy it was to meet all of the guests.

Talk about a RING! Jessica’s favorite color is navy blue, so the sapphire ring that David got her was completely perfect.

Don’t you just love how the simplest things are the best? This cake was adorable.

THANK YOU so much, David and Jessica! We loved getting to know you and your amazing family and friends. Your wedding day will always be remembered as one of our favorites and we wish you so much happiness in your marriage together.
